I am on my way back to Idaho after an incredible experience at the Hardrock 100. It will take me a few days to pull together a full report but here's the executive summary:
The race had the largest number of finishers ever (106 I believe)
Karl Meltzer ran an amazing race beating Jurek's CCW CR by over two hours.
Troy Howard also beat Jurek's previous record and ran the third fastest time ever (in either direction)
Diana Finkel was a machine in beating Krissy's Course Record by over two hours.
Scott Jaime ran steady and hard all day and night for a solid 4th.
I am pretty happy with 5th and my time of 28:09. All in all, it is a truly spectacular event in all the ways. I'll write more in a few days.
